Project too new for final cut 6.0.2 error message

Advertisement

My colleague at work has edited a rough cut on her Quad Core Intel computer. I'm using a Power Mac G5, and was able to download the project onto my desktop, but I get this message every time I try to open it: "This project is unreadable or may be too new for this version of Final Cut." We're both using FCP 6.0.2, I've done all the software updates I can, but I still receive the message. Does anyone know what I can do?

Did the person use the same workstation you are using? If you have the other person's volume mounted on your desktop, and you are definitely running the same OS, and you have the same version of FCP, then try opening the original file, not a copy. If it opens, do a *"save as"* instead of using a duplicated copy of the project.
Also, if they are using a different workstation, they may have another 3rd party component installed that they used, (maybe a filter or codec), that would interfere with it opening. The best way to make sure FibreJet works seemlessly in a multi-station work environment is to make absolutely sure that every station is a clone of the others. If you do an update on one, you have to do it on all. If you add an application, make sure you add it to all stations.
If you are using a different workstation, try to open it with the other station, then mount your desktop to that station through the LAN, and do a *"save as"* to your desktop, then try opening it from there.
Of course, do all this after trying to zip it before copying it. It only takes a second and would eliminate one aspect of the possible problem.
